Yes. It's not strictly necessary, but it works.

I don't see that happening with the code you are using.  Correct me if I'm wrong.  So I am trying to figure out how this works once you have created the dbw files?  How do you connect this to your web page, or does the code actually produce some .htm file to the htdocs folder that I am missing?

The web wizard does things its way ... you have to link to them. Did you
look at the sample application that comes with the paper? There's a .zip
file ... and in the main folder is "index.htm" which includes this HTML
